LUNG FORCE Heroes
Having a parent diagnosed with lung cancer is hard. Having both parents face lung cancer seemed beyond comprehension. I was only 24 years old when my dad lost his battle, but I rejoice in the fact that my mom is a 19-year SURVIVOR!
I fight to be a part of someone else's survivor story. I myself have two rare lung diseases and have a very close cousin who has another. We need even more research and cleaner air. Everybody's got to breathe!
